    Compensation for a fall as a child


    We’ve all suffered falls and tumbles as children, whether you spent your childhood climbing trees or cycling your bike everywhere. Children are accident prone – it’s true. They’re less aware of their surroundings and any dangers present, and so accidents can and do happen. But whilst most accidents are simply that, accidents, what about if a member of your family suffered a fall as a child which was somebody else’s fault?

    Sending your child to nursery, playgroup or school is a scary time for most parents as you’re trusting the staff there to take good care of your child. They’ll need to be supervised at all times, and often a fall as a child happens when staff are negligent and distracted whilst they should be supervising children. Children could fall from a climbing frame or outdoor play equipment, whilst babies could fall if left alone on a changing mat or suffer a fall if their highchair is knocked over by other children.

    If this is something which has affected your family, why not find out right now whether you’re entitled to claim personal injury compensation by getting in touch with our expert personal injury advisors?

    Confidential advice

    You might not be 100% sure that you want to claim, but our team can offer confidential, no-obligation advice which allows you to make the decision without any pressure. Whether your child was seriously injured in an accident at school or suffered minor injuries which knocked their confidence, you could claim if your family member has experienced a fall as a child. You want a lawyer you can trust, and we have years of experience in the personal injury industry. So we can help you to claim the compensation your child deserves.

    Minor or severe injuries

    Injuries sustained after a fall could range from minor – such as cuts, bruises and a loss of confidence – to severe, life-changing injuries such as brain damage and head injuries. Severe injuries can impact the rest of your child’s life and can have a devastating effect on your family both emotionally and financially. Let Accident Advice Helpline take the weight off your shoulders by helping you make a claim for personal injury compensation, which could cover the cost of any treatment or therapy your child needs now and in the future. It’s free to call our 24/7 helpline on 0800 689 0500 and find out if you’re eligible to make a claim – so what are you waiting for?
